The Absent Minded Husband – I’m posting this one at the top in the hope that my wife will read it and develop a whole new sympathy for…wait, what was I talking about again?

Making Sense of Inconsitency – Tim Keller has penned an article “considering the larger issue of inconsistency regarding things mentioned in the Old Testament no longer practiced by the New Testament people of God. Most Christians don’t know what to say when confronted about this issue. Here’s a short course on the relationship of the Old Testament to the New Testament.”

With name calling and all sorts of false accusations, they attempt (futilely) to discredit this high-quality professional facility. Well, here is something ironic! The Smithsonian (unknowingly, I’m sure) has used a photograph of one of the dinosaurs inside our Creation Museum on a major promotional brochure for its popular IMAX shows…”

Youth Group Project – Here’s an amazing project for a youth group. “I was driving down Main Street and saw a tent pitched outside of a residence that was next to the downtown business district. A bunch of teenagers were milling about. There was a podium, and it looked like someone was reading from it. A sign said, ‘I ate them.com.’”

Empty and Powerless – A sweet article from Ray Ortlund. “Today would have been my dad’s eighty-ninth birthday. I am missing him today. I miss him every day. I miss him more than I can say.”

The ultimate test of our spirituality is the measure of our amazement at the grace of God.

—D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

  • Leadership

    We Need Qualified Leadership

    A few days ago I happened upon the page of an especially mega-sized megachurch. The church is about to undergo a leadership transition from an older man to a younger one and a page on the site lays out the process through which this new pastor was chosen. I read with a morbid kind of…
